FIBA Basketball World Cup: DR Congo forfeit game against Kenya (20-00)



The DRC won by forfeit its match against Kenya with the score of 20-00. Mobile: The Kenyan team did not appear on the pitch at the time of the match.

Initially scheduled for 4 p.m., the meeting between the Senior Leopards Gentlemen of the DRC against the Harambee Stars of Kenya on Friday July 1 had been postponed to 9:30 p.m. to allow the Kenyans to arrive at the venue of the competition, in Alexandria in Egypt.

Housed in group D alongside Egypt, Senegal and Kenya (package), DR Congo (7 pts +24) which currently occupies 2nd place, will meet Senegal this Saturday, July 2.

As a reminder, on the first day, Egypt hit hard against Senegal (76-43). For now, it’s the Pharaohs (7 pts +80) who smoke the controls of the group. They are guaranteed to be in the second round of the 2023 World Cup qualifiers.

On the other side, the opponent of the DRC this Saturday Senegal (6 pts +25) is in 3rd place. The Lions will be in the second round, because Kenya did not make the trip to Alexandria.
